The MMA is hosting its first Festival of Singing in Brighton Dome on Monday 10th October. We are delighted to welcome Alexander L’Estrange to lead the day. He is one of Britain’s most popular living choral composers and regularly leads choral workshops and singing days. We invite choirs from Primary Schools and Prep Schools to join together for an afternoon in celebration of choral singing.

There is the opportunity for individual choirs to perform to the Festival from the Dome stage, should they wish to, and all choirs can participate in the massed workshop and performance.

The first part of the afternoon will be for the individual choirs who wish to have their own performing slot to receive guidance from Alexander L’Estrange. This will be followed by a massed rehearsal of Zadok Rules – Hallelujah!. After a short break to allow parents and audience members to take their seats the individual choirs who have opted to sing will perform their pieces to the Festival and audience followed by the massed items directed by Alexander L’Estrange.
